Fun is serious business and it is our goal to ensure we provide year-round fun for families of all ages, 1-101. Based on the S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) learning principles Kidzone creates a space for hands-on activities and programming in our 5 zones. “Laugh, Learn, Explore, Discover” as you “play to learn and learn to play”.
Studies of brain development have shown substantial evidence that there is real power in play. Often times we ignore play as “just fun”, when in fact it is a vital activity that children use to learn and interact with their world. Through the use of play children gain mental, physical, and social skills necessary to succeed in life. Self-directed play allows children to freely laugh with their friends, learn about making choices, explore the unknown, and discover their interests. Key skills, such as critical thinking, communication, problem solving, and collaboration, are important development milestones that we aim to provide families with.
The Muskoka Discovery Centre is a multi-sensory, hands-on, active, and family-friendly environment which offers unique and fun learning opportunities for every age. We strive to provide an environment which stimulates children’s natural curiosity and creativity. We work closely with experts from a variety of fields to develop and provide play-based learning experiences that children can explore
